Chozoviotissa Monastery on Street View

The Monastery of Chozoviotissa, literally inlaid in a vertiginous cliff, faces the immensity of the Big Blue. This unlikely building is the most famous attraction of Amorgos and the steep climb as such is an unforgettable experience, offering amazing views. Just don't go when tour buses pour out groups of visitors!

The monastery is still active and the visit of the interior is limited to the entrance, two small rooms opening onto terraces, and the church. Visitors are offered a glass of rakomelo and a loukoum, and it's impossible to linger due to the small size of the place and the crowds. Good to know: during the afternoon, cliff and monastery are in the shade, go there in the morning!
